„One has to remember that about imagination, that is when the world gets dull when everybody does not know what they can or what they cannot really imagine.“

—  Gertrude Stein

Fonte: Everybody’s Autobiography (1937), Ch. 3
Contexto: Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I could completely imagine his suffering and I replied that five thousand Chinamen were something I could not imagine and so it was not interesting.
One has to remember that about imagination, that is when the world gets dull when everybody does not know what they can or what they cannot really imagine.

„A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no one. We each have our circle.“

—  Gertrude Stein

"A Circular Play," from Last Operas and Plays (1949) [written in 1920]
Contexto: A beauty is not suddenly in a circle. It comes with rapture. A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no one. We each have our circle.

„From the very nature of progress, all ages must be transitional.“

—  Gertrude Stein

"Form and Intelligibility," from The Radcliffe Manuscripts (1949); written in 1894 as an undergraduate at Radcliffe College
Contexto: From the very nature of progress, all ages must be transitional. If they were not, the world would be at a stand-still and death would speedily ensue. It is one of the tamest of platitudes but it is always introduced by a flourish of trumpets.

„Explanations are clear but since no one to whom a thing is explained can connect the explanations with what is really clear, therefore clear explanations are not clear.“

—  Gertrude Stein

Fonte: Everybody’s Autobiography (1937), Ch. 4
Contexto: Explanations are clear but since no one to whom a thing is explained can connect the explanations with what is really clear, therefore clear explanations are not clear. Now this is a simple thing that anybody who has ever argued or quarreled knows perfectly well is a simple thing, only when they read it they do not understand it because they do not see that understanding and believing are not the same thing.

„All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation…“

—  Gertrude Stein

Statement quoted by Ernest Hemingway in A Moveable Feast (1964) Ch. 3, it had also provided the epigraph to The Sun Also Rises (1926).
Contexto: All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation... You have no respect for anything. You drink yourselves to death.

„It always did bother me that the American public were more interested in me than in my work.“

—  Gertrude Stein

Fonte: Everybody’s Autobiography (1937), Ch. 2
Contexto: It always did bother me that the American public were more interested in me than in my work. And after all there is no sense in it because if it were not for my work they would not be interested in me so why should they not be more interested in my work than in me. That is one of the things one has to worry about in America.
